Chemotherapy is a treatment that uses drugs to kill cancer cells. Unfortunately, this type of treatment can also have some unpleasant side effects on the skin. Common side effects include dryness, itchiness, redness, darkening of the skin, and peeling. You may also find that you are more sensitive to the sun and may get sunburns more easily. Your nails may also become darker and cracked, and your cuticles may hurt.
It is important to remember that these side effects vary from person to person, and not everyone will experience them all. If you are experiencing any uncomfortable side effects, be sure to speak to your doctor about it. There may be ways to help relieve the symptoms.

Most people think of skincare in terms of the products they use to cleanse, moisturize, and protect their skin from the sun. However, for cancer patients undergoing treatment, skincare is much more than that. The side effects of cancer treatment can take a toll on a patient’s skin, making it dry, sensitive, and susceptible to infection.
The risk of skin side effects differs from patient to patient and requires a well-thought-out course of treatment. When recommending products for clients, it is important to avoid ingredients that may interfere with treatment, cause irritation, or lead to cancer.
This is why it is so important for cancer patients to seek out the help of a qualified skincare expert who can customize a treatment plan specifically for them. Our goal at Anna Lotan PRO is to help cancer patients feel better about themselves when they may be feeling their worst.
Anna Lotan PRO’s Oncology Skin Care Products and Protocols
In collaboration with FAB, Anna Lotan PRO has developed three protocols for estheticians, dedicated to patients currently undergoing chemotherapy:
The treatment plans are based on Anna Lotan PRO’s newly released Rosease skin care line. The gentle, bio-mimetic formulations of the Rosease line of derma-cosmetics ensure optimal skin tolerance and target specific manifestations of skin redness such as: minimizing visible redness, reducing inflammation, and cleansing the skin to retrieve its natural barrier functions.
Our ingredients are backed by extensive research, so you can be confident that they will provide the best possible care for your patients, without having to worry about their safety.
